That day cannot come too soon. Mayor Ronnie Serpico had to know for years exactly what Scavo was doing, and much, much more.

U.S. Attorney Fitzgerald and his assistants are my heroes. Thank God we have them to get rid of scum like Scavo and his like. Let the rest of the snakes in Melrose Park hear the message!!

To all humanoids,

The cops in this story were making a few extra dollars. Now compare that to the scum you elected in Washington that are stealing billions. How about this humanoids the crooks on Wall Street that brought the world to a financial crises getting bonus for doing that thanks to the crooks in Washington.

Yes, humanoids be pround the government wasted all this money for what. The chicken bleep government tough guys let drugs sales go on but they sure stopped 3 cops from making a few extra dollars.

The solution to this big criime wave was for the cops to repay the village for the time abuse. It was not worth the cost to put these guys away.

You have done well humanoids

The corrupt paid off cops and politicians took in millions of dollars, did not control crime and they have actually allowed more crime at great cost to the taxpayers to flourish. It is worth every penny to prosecute and jail them. You defend the crooks as though you are one of them.

the bigger question may be, if you knew something, why didn't you step up on your own?

We aren't "Brain dead". We realize the mess our town is in & we know that the corruption is more widespread than it looks. When are you going to tell us what the big "surprise is going to be?" You seem to know more than the feds. So speak up already!!
